Metal Giants BURDEN OF GRIEF Return With New Single And New Studio Album “Destination Dystopia”

Death/Thrash Metal Giants BURDEN OF GRIEF Return With Fierce New Single Off Upcoming Studio Album “Destination Dystopia”! German death/thrash metallers, BURDEN OF GRIEF, have announced the release of their eighth studio album, titled “Destination Dystopia”.

It’s their first offering in more than five long years. Five years, in which so much has happened in the world that BURDEN OF GRIEF was forced to refer to it lyrically and musically. Reinforced by the two new members Dominik Hellmuth (guitars) and Manuel Lüke (drums), they now present the strongest, heaviest and most varied album in the almost 30-year band history. 

This is the very first song we wrote for the new album and it’s also the first song written by our new guitarist Dome.The last time that a BURDEN OF GRIEF song wasn’t written by our band founder Philipp or by our longtime guitarist Joe, who unfortunately left the band in 2021 after 15 years, was in 2003. Therefore “Fevered Dreams” has actually a special status for us. Nevertheless, it fits in perfectly with our previous works.”The band

BURDEN OF GRIEF focuses on their years of experience, combines their strengths and put them into 10 riff monsters that are bursting with energy, great melodies and pure heaviness on “Destination Dystopia”. Expect killer grooves, classic twin-guitar solos as well as the return of the old-school Hammond organ. Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner and his assistant Daniel Claar took care of the drum recordings, mixing and mastering of the album at the Kohlekeller Studios (Hämatom, Powerwolf, Aborted, etc.), and they made sure that “Destination Dystopia” is the tightest and heaviest album BURDEN OF GRIEF has ever released!

Available as CD, Ltd. Vinyl LP and Digital formats on November 24, 2023, through Massacre Records, the album pre-sale is open now
